Genesis of a Box
Constructivist analysis of the Box begins with a dot in space.
It is a singular dimension.
It denotes a location.
When a dot moves, it has destination and a path from a point of departure to a point of arrival.
A moving dot creates a line or a vector. It is a 2 dimension.
It denotes 2 locations and a distance.
When a line moves, it spreads as a plane of either horizontal or vertical.
An entity of a 2 dimensions move,
it creates a plane – a typical square plan.
It denotes 4 locations and 2 distances of x:y axis.
When a plane moves, it creates volume of a 3 dimensional entity of x:y:z.
This volume is the tectonic form of a box.
The Box is created when a plane (typical square plan) moves.
A Box is fundamentally established as complete structure for human habitation according to Chinese Metaphysics.
Such is called the 4 Points Gold Theory.
Where the 4 angles completing the Box are Gold and any absent of such angle are considered inauspicious.
They are deemed to be Missing Corners.
The enclosure of a Box is also very important in Chinese Metaphysics.
The enclosure house the Heavenly Heart. It is the Soul of the human habitation.
If the Heavenly Heart is not enclose, many of the Chinese Metaphysics principle will not work.
Addition to a Box
You add a balcony that is not square to your Box. No one is going to complaint given the square plan intact.
You playfully tilted the balcony so that it looked “sexy” in elevation. So now you have a Box with a sexy looking balcony.
You are post-modern.
You decide to enlarge the Box. One plane is tilted in elevation.
The observer will asked, “Hey, why a wall tilted in such awkward angle?”
Your Box invites dialogue between the user and your creation.
The addition space is more, people will perceive it as a subtraction instead.
The essence of the Box remains but the form becomes something else.
The form becomes dynamic with different shadow casting through time.
Mirror image such, you will gather a series of “wave”.
Such wave adds dynamic to the form.
Stacking them up,
you will witness a “spiraling” effect of such form.
It complicates the form.
